Default Low-Carb Beats Low-Fat for Weight Loss, Study Says

Lewis :

Marko Rauhamaa was all, like:
Still, the equation holds. If you expend more energy than you take in,
you will lose weight.

It is simply not that simple. If you deprive your body of sufficient
nutrition, your body slows down its metabolism and goes into
'starvation' mode.

And? What's wrong with the 'starvation mode'? What bodily functions are
left undone?

If you continue doing this, you will lose weight, but unless you
continue to starve yourself the weight will return (and very quickly)
and will probably exceed your starting weight.

The solution is to diet (in order to maintain your weight) till the day
you die.

Your body *wants* to get fat again, badly. The moment you stop dieting
and start trusting the instincts, you start getting fat because
overeating will only make you feel good.
